This was our second time dining at Side Work and the experience was once again very good. We talked about how your pallet becomes so alive from the many amazing flavors present in each delicious item. We will definitely be back. Wish the entree selection was a bit more diverse and pricing a bit more reasonable. A hidden gem in Telluride.

Food very tasty once we got it. 1 hour between apps and entrees.
Small dining room, very noisy. Party of 8 ladies at the next table screamed throughout.
One waiter acted silly and wanted to entertain rather than serve.

We had a great time. Food and service were outstanding. However, it was more expensive than it should have been. As a point of reference, we eat at terrific restaurants regularly, living in Philadelphia and the Jersey shore . A fine dining experience at home would have been about 25% less.

The wine list was impressive, but there were no bottles less than $65, most in the $90+ range. Two glasses of Sauvignon Blanc , admittedly very good, was $38.

The folks that run Sideworks are great! They really make the ambiance and experience at Sideworks unique. The drinks here are outstanding. The food is very good but expect the flavors to be unique. We started our night with French 75 and a charcuterie board, boom! Great! We then had Lobster bisque, fantastic! We closed with a porkchop that was good but slightly overdone, still delicious. We have missed Honga's since it left as our go to first night in town, whew we have arrived experience, Sideworks is now going to be our first stop every time we arrive. Join us, it is worth it!

They canceled my reservation that I made a month in advance the afternoon of my reservation. Patrick told me he had moved my reservation to Cosmo, but they had me on the wait list for 30min earlier, so after complaining without any apology, we ended up walking across the street to Oak. Glad we did! The bartender and food were great!

Always a fun time at Side Works. Great cocktails, delicious food and unbeatable jokes from Patrick. The team was definitely busy due to the President's weekend rush, so we were asked to put in our full order at once. That made me nervous about pacing, but my worries were unnecessary. The team nailed it!

The menu linked on open table is not accurate price wise. It felt like a bait and switch, given that the prices at the restaurant as of today were at least 30% more for mains, and wine was magnitudes more.

Just my first time to Sidework, but it's an instant favorite. The unique menu makes ordering a meal feel like a fun, exciting exploration, but with no possible wrong turns or tribulations. The charcuterie boards to start are a must. This is the kind of place that you'd be honored to be a regular. Here's hoping...

Our table was basically ignored all night which was a bummer. It took a long time to find a waiter to take our order and no one checked on our table again to see if we needed anything, including more drinks. We had to ask for someone to clear the table after the plates had been finished for 20 minutes and then it took another 20 minutes to get a dessert menu. It was really strange - the staff seemed to actively try to avoid our eyes in case we asked for something. We have been to this restaurant several times and usually the menu is explained in detail and service is attentive so it was especially disappointing. The food was good but I don’t think we will return anytime soon.

Simply the BEST! From food to décor to service to PATRICK...an amazing evening that should not be missed. The food is amongst the top 3 restaurants in town, but the service & ambience is the best. From cocktails custom crafted to your preferences to chef Patrick visiting, sharing stories and irreverent jokes the evening is truly memorable. For a truly amazing evening just place your selections in the hands of Patrick from the "board" to entries, to dessert and the accompanying wine....our favorite wine and food geek (Patrick) will take you on a culinary journey sure to please. Just don't take my reservation!

Best pork chop ever & great wine list. The cocktails we’re mostly historical and liquor forward, and could’ve used some additional options. Traditional food offerings that’re probably cooked better than you’ve ever had them.
